Visit Stuttgart and its Old Castle by train

Stuttgart has something for everyone, from automotive museums and a brilliant zoo, to beautiful parks and historical buildings. A fantastic adventure awaits!

Discover the history of cars in Stuttgart

The stunning location of Stuttgart, in southeast Germany, is in itself sufficient reason to visit. The city is spread across various hills, many with vineyards, valleys and parks, which contrast starkly with the automotive industry that Stuttgart is famous for. But don't worry; there is plenty to see here for car lovers. The Mercedes-Benz Museum and the Porsche Museum trace the history of both brands, whereas the Stuttgart Tram Museum displays historical vehicles dating back to 1868. If cars aren't your thing, it may be worth it to time your visit to coincide with the annual Volksfest. This is sometimes called the Stuttgart Beer Festival due to the large quantities of beer being served, but there are also fun fair rides and stalls offering traditional German food.

Children and adults alike will love a visit to the Wilhelmina Zoo, which is German's only combined botanical and zoological garden. Here you can admire around 8,000 animals and 5,000 plant species, including the largest magnolia grove in Europe. The ornate 19th-century greenhouses and pavilions invite visitors to take in the park at a leisurely pace. For a beautiful view of Stuttgart and its surroundings, take a trip up the 216-metre-high TV Tower. Why not watch the sunset from its Panorama Café? Stuttgart is easily reachable by train. And don't forget to admire the striking architecture of the main railway station upon arrival!
